Landscape near Niederleis during early Morning Twilight

 

Dawn near Niederleis

 

Notes: A morning twilight image taken in the night before the Venus Transit 2004, which was observed from the same site. This observation site is located in the fields near to Niederleis/Lower Austria. The moon was up in the sky. Being overexposed, it appears as a radiant disk of light at left.

The city of Vienna, which lies almost directly towards the south as seen from this site, is responsible for the yellowish plume of light near the horizon. The "towers" which can be seen at the horizon in front of the light pollution are in fact wind-power generators, each fitted with a red light.

The prominent constellation Sagittarius is visible near the right edge of the photograph. This photograph was made with a Nikon D70 Digital SLR and a Nikon 18 - 70 mm DX zoom lens, the exposure time was 48 seconds at f/4.5.
